BlackBerry Development is typically difficult because of the amount of different operating systems / carriers / phones.

There are 2 aspects to this plugin

1) The vBulletin code
2) The BlackBerry App

If you have issues, you can provide this thread with the following:
  1. Your Forum URL
  2. Make and Model of your BlackBerry
  3. Operating System Version (4.5+)
  4. Your Provider
  5. The problem you are having

This app has been tested on ALL simulators for BlackBerrys with OS 4.5+ Installed. (Pearl, Curve, Bold, Bold 2, Gemini, Storm, Storm 2etc.. )

vBulletin Install

- Download the attached vBulletin Code
- Unzip to your forum root directory.
- There will be one file in your root named mobiforum.php and a new directory called m_functions
- Find the config file in /m_functions/config.php and edit it to your needs
- Change the icon "forum_large_icon.png" to your forum icon.

BlackBerry Install

OS 4.5+ and OS 4.7 Storm / Storm 2

Use your BlackBerry browser to surf to:

If you can't see our mobile download page, surf to

Once installed:

- Open the software
- Press the "BlackBerry Key" and select "Add Forum"
- Type in the full to your forum, (where you extracted your zip file), including backslash.

That should be it. Your forum should be listed and you can now surf using your blackberry, natively. Use the "options" menu when you are viewing your forum to sign in.

This software comes with an Update Check for your BlackBerry, so you should only need to install it once on your phone and it will check for Updates everytime you connect with it.

You will (as a forum administrator) have to keep up with the updates on the vBulletin side however.

Note: Your typical data usage charges apply when using this.

I will do my best to supply as much support as possible for all your phone types / forums.

Please make sure you post a LINK to your forum so that I can test it on my own BlackBerry as well as add it to the list above.

As requested! High res photo's.

BlackBerry APN Settings:

For anyone that doesn't have their proper APN settings, you will likely receive a "Tunnel Failed" error (this will happen with most any BB apps that are using the internet, facebook, ubertwitter.. etc).

Bold 9000 on ROGERS

Setup -> Options -> Advanced Options -> TCP/IP

Check APN Settings Enabled

Leave everything else blank.

For your APN settings, check this page:

Use this link on your BlackBerry's Browser to Install to your phone:

Make sure you have the attached file installed on your vBulletin here:

OR use one of the test sites listed above.

If you are testing on the site you listed above, I have no tried any other language options yet, although they should work if you have the language packs installed on your BlackBerry / vBulletin.

Please let me know if it works in your Language. If not, I will add it to the list of "things to do"

Will this show all notifications as well when you log in (not just pms) example, when someone posts on your wall?

^^ I haven't made it show wall notifications yet (since I don't use that feature on my forum it wasn't a priority) but I will gladly add that functionality if you want it.

The app is still "Young" - so putting your requests in now for features you want is VERY likely to be completed, or at least started

Very nice!!! Too bad I use a Storm.

Guess I will keep my eyes open for a compatible Storm version.

^^ It should really easy for me to port (I've ported my apps to storm in the past) .. I just haven't had time since I've been working on this first. This will technically work on the storm, I just don't know how user friendly it will be since it will be in compatibility mode. If everything goes smooth with this Beta, I will do a Storm Version next week for you.

If you want to upload the plugin to your site, I can test with my Bold (or have your other users test it) that way we will be way ahead of the game when the storm version is released.

My other issue is that I don't have an actual Storm to test on, since my network is 3G.
